Janak Khendry Dance Company celebrates its 39th season and Canada’s 150th Anniversary with a unique Indian classical dance creation choreographed by Janak Khendry entitled Life Eternal that reflects on transcending time and space, leading to eternal calm – and love, peace, freedom and happiness. Featuring 14 dancers, including Mr. Khendry, Life Eternal delves into ancient universal truths embraced by Jain, Hindu and Buddhist philosophies, weaving these teachings into the dance structure.
RWM is celebrating its 25th Anniversary this year. There are still many interesting films to see at RWM. Some of my personal picks include: I Am Not Afraid (Dir. Fadi Hindash, Netherlands) – about a doctor’s intricately complicated relationship with his troubled patient, who no longer wants to live. The Girl, the Mother and the Demons (Dir. Suzanne Osten, Sweden) – the film focuses on the enduring love of a prematurely grownup young girl for the only mother she knows, and the unconditional nature of that bond. And the Closing Night Film, Holden On (Dir. Tamlin Hall, USA) – the film focuses on Holden, whom after succumbing to a secret battle with mental illness, Holden evolves from a beloved, small town Georgia football player to a lost, self-medicating prophet.
